Collindale Station Capacity Upgrade
Disciplines: Procurement Advisory, Constructability Advisory, Value Engineering
The Colindale Station Redevelopment project team required greater certainty that LU’s baseline scheme was both cost-effective and buildable. SRC Infrastructure was appointed to provide the LU project team with an advisory service that enabled a detailed “two phase” procurement approach to the evaluation of TfL Framework partners construction studies and value engineering cost proposals. The objective was to ensure that the best value proposal was awarded the Design and Build Contract. The collaborative “two-phase” procurement approach:
Achieved a 20% reduction in the forecasted costs of design and construction.
Built more certainty about the deliverability of the scheme and a clearer understanding of the risks associated with it.
Key benefits included:
The LU team had opportunities to see how the contractors were developing their proposals throughout the engagement and reflect on acceptability in “real time”
The contractors had the opportunity to better understand the impact of their proposals and thus appreciate the expectations of the LU team. This enabled a re-engineering of the proposals to provide more confidence across design, buildability, and expected costs.
